Poured from Coravin. Earth, plum, hint of raisin. Silky mouthfeel. — 6 days ago
Served from Coravin. I can see why the average CT for these wines hovers around a 91. This wine seems to drink in 'reverse.' Has a powerful purple and black fruit opening, but then really thins out quite a bit to a sweeter purple fruit and fig-rich finish. Definitely not a bad wine. Almost wondering if I didn't open this one too early, but not so sure as this one sort of has somewhat of a tart fruit finish. Not that it wasn't an enjoyable tart finish, but not what I was expecting. Just seemed to be all over the place. Would I kick this one out of bed for eating crackers? Naa....I'd probably eat a few myself. I think this wine showed better at the winery. If you have these, I really can't tell you whether or not I'd drink or hold....a little confused by this one! Might be worth popping the cork on the remaining half of the bottle, re-corking in an hour and coming back to the remainder tomorrow! — 2 months ago

We opened this one 6 months ago using the Coravin.
This is a truly great wine. You do not have to put your nose in the glass.... it is there and it stays there. WoW. Red fruit, tar, leather, black fruit, sandelwood. Close to perfection for me.

With the Coravin. Poored 5 hours before dinner. Nice purple red color. Cinnamon nose. Loads of fruit, hints of tar and rosemary. Well balanced in the mouth. Paired very well with the vennison and red wine port sauce. It “competed” against the Chadwick 2007. — 25 days ago
Coravin model two allowed me to tap into this 70 year old bottle. Smooth at first, didn’t improve much during the first 30 mins. Stayed solid throughout. — a month ago
